How was it for you?

Here 2021 in France is so far very good. How was it for you on this first day of the new year ?
A ‘French’ lunch, 13.30 to 18.30 with Anglo French foods and very French wines, so I suppose that is a success🤨?
As several of our friends where not available for the 31st of ‘that year 2***’,
In consultation with my English neighbour Matt who insisted upon marking the occasion, we opted for a new year mini fete on the first, my house being the venue.

Spirit of Mystery, Southern Ocean
I am about to loose my internet connection, again, a week of problems.
Troubles I already have, I don’t need more !
I don’t know for how long.
I am trying to exchange my Orange Livebox which is often a Deadbox, for the new model.
Very poor service from Orange is not helping and wasting much of my valuable time😯.
